Yoga Teaching Mentorship Program
Teach What You Know. Know What You Teach.
Yoga Tree’s 40 hour Yoga Teaching Mentorship Program
So you finished your first 200 hour yoga teacher training. Now what? You feel the gap between knowing how to teach yoga and actually teaching yoga. How do you take the knowledge gained about the deep world of yoga and apply it to the even deeper world of teaching?
Ask for help.
The Yoga Tree Mentorship Program is a 40 hour intensive created to close the gap between teacher training and actually teaching. By assigning you to a mentor teacher to shadow and assist in class you will gain a deeper understanding of how to effectively guide students and “hold space” for others. In class hours will include assignments created to connect you to your authentic teaching voice, a review of the art of sequencing, deeper knowledge of safe hands on adjustments, and a demystification of the business of yoga.
Begins August 19 – 20 & August 26 -27
Hosted at Yonge & Eglinton: 40 hour training
Instructor: Jelayna D.
Jelayna found yoga in 2006. For the next four years she visited her practice with a shy reluctance. A collegiate athlete who studied at the University of Kansas on a full athletic scholarship for rowing, she graduated with a Bachelor’s in Psychology. Working in both corporate and non-profit positions, she searched for balance. It wasn’t until 2010, when she walked through the Yoga Tree studio doors, that she began to find the internal peace and balance yoga provides through physical, emotional, mental and spiritual movement.
She finally fully gave herself to the practice of yoga. A grateful graduate of the Yoga Tree teacher training program, her focus is on helping others find self-acceptance through the practice of yoga. Movement of the body helps still the mind. If your mind is racing, come and enjoy a class with Jelayna. Just be ready to leave your reluctance on the mat.
